Saint Louis, MO—A modern twist on an old classic will offer pastors a fresh devotional resource, speaking to a new generation of pastors and enhancing their prayer lives.

Concordia Publishing House introduces The Pastor at Prayer—Revised Edition. Written by George Kraus and edited by CPH’s Scot A. Kinnaman, this selection was designed to strengthen pastors in their ministry, offering basic readings and a framework for daily prayer and meditation on God’s Word.

“What a great joy to have Kraus’s classic Pastor at Prayer updated and revised for a new generation,” said Rev. William Weedon, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Director of Worship and Chaplain of the International Center. “Keyed to the Lutheran Service Book and theTreasury of Daily Prayer, this little volume will be a huge blessing to today’s pastors as they seek to grow in their life of prayer. Yet another CPH homerun!”

A Lutheran, pastoral, devotional prayer guide, centered in the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions, this revision includes all of the prayers in a contemporary style and updates all referenced texts to those currently available.

The Pastor at Prayer is a faithful resource that has shaped the devotional life of LCMS pastors for generations,” said Rev. Bart Day, Executive Director of National Mission, LCMS. “How wonderful to see it refreshed and offered anew. Those of us who cut our devotional teeth on Kraus will be happy to see a delightful blend of old and new.”
